"EVERY six weeks, someone asks this, as if it just started with this update."
So far as I'm concerned, it has only started with this update (I did search, however "no results were found"). I have updated when prompted in the same way in the past, and had checkboxes I could untick for any other software than the actual update...
So... why the difference this time?
An automatic update prompt shouldn't just install something else (it never has before hence I've never had cause to look on here before)

That one goes back three updates ago, and http://forums.adobe.com/message/4315988 goes back two years...
This has been an ongoing thing. There is an updater that blindly installs McAfee and another that installs Google Chrome and Toolbar. People have been complaining about it for years, and it doesn't change, and it won't change.
I'm not being condescending, and I'm not trying to lecture you on this. I'm just stating the facts. If there had been any intent on anyone's part to do something about it, posts like this wouldn't pop up here every month and a half, like clockwork.
It's the number one reason we post the FULL installer links. Because they have NOTHING IN THEM but the Flash Player plug-in.
"I'm not being condescending"
I know, I am just a bit frustrated in having an issue with an automatic update, and wanted to point that out (and the fact that it is a new issue to me, and that I did search with no results found before signing up and posting this question).
I haven't taken your post in a condescending way (and it is helpful). I'm also disapointed to find that (in your experience) this is a regular thing people do moan about, yet nothing has been done.
I just cannot see why things are done in this kind of way (which obviously causes problems for people). If nothing were posted by people inconvenienced by these problems though, it would be certain that nothing would be done. Hopefully with enough people complaining, someone at Adobe "might" eventually be prompted to sort it out.

While I agree with that sentiment... "I ain't gonna hold my breath."
"I ain't gonna hold my breath."
Probably a wise move!
Thanks for the help BTW (should've said in last post).
